Big day for Mini Mac duo
Competition winners Stuart Little and Christina Clayton
Stuart and Christina take a break while commentating



The two lucky winners of our Mini Mac competition were at Centre Court on Sunday to commentate on the men's final, and to meet John McEnroe himself.

Stuart Little and Christina Clayton were picked out by McEnroe and other BBC experts from the hundreds of other budding commentators who phoned their clips through to us.

And they assumed their positions behind the microphone to convey Lleyton Hewitt's three-set triumph to viewers on the BBC's Wimbledon Interactive channel.

Stuart, who is 15 and comes from Kendal in Cumbria, said afterwards:

"It was unbelievable and a big occasion - but I thought I would sound more laid back and relaxed.


It's been a wonderful day, especially to meet so many people
Mini Mac winner Christina Clayton

"You have to listen to all the different things, but we did have a bit of help, by listening to the BBC commentators as well.

Christina, who is 12 and lives in Fishbourne near Chichester, added:

"We copied Boris Becker when we got stuck!

"It's been a wonderful day, especially to meet so many people.

"But I don't think I sound like that in real life."
